Are you supposed to be tense when it lands? what is the proper technique ? do you move your feet during the punch?

Wouldn't a tight fist make your forearms too rigid?
Also, don't forget not to punch with your pinkies. You'll break them
Sounds like you start out with bitch slapping
Can stronger wrists and hands aid in your technique?

In combat sports it's not about looking better, it's about winning, this is not a bodybuilding competition
>it's about winning, this is not a bodybuilding competition
calm down anon. I was just asking if it might be a weird meta play or somthing.
Why do you think I'm not calm?
you have very little understanding how combat sports work and why there are weight divisions in most of them.

came up with a complete guide to fighting, give it a read and tell me what you guys think.

>grappling: catch as catch can wrestling, encompasses the most effective takedowns and is the ancestor to any modern wrestling/grappling worth anything. the ground game rivals BJJ

>striking: old school European pugilist boxing, specifically British, literally near identical to muay thai but more punching less kicks and better clinching/standing grappling that merges perfectly with catch as catch can. its a bare knuckle system so while it is fairly similar to most striking it has some minor alterations. for you Americans rough and tumble is a very similar thing but you guys got some different techniques.
>an addition to the striking is also defendu but that's more for catching someone off guard before the fight starts unlike British pugilism which is more traditional cage fighting, i also just like the chin jab.

>knife fighting: only pressure tested system seems to be from prison knife fighting and I'm looking into MBC. the general gist is taking a basic striking stance but the cross hand instead is holding the knife and is tucked to your side to avoid being kicked away or touched. the jab hand becomes a probing and you try to get stabbed in before your neck and you use it for grabbing or punching before you stab with the cross hand(stab like you would punch) this is obviously for small or medium knifes intended for stabbing and not hacking.

Catch wrestling really is that niche. It only exists in Japan so recommending it as the ultimate grappling style isn't particularly helpful. You say that most wrestling styles descended from catch but a descendant style can be extremely divergent from its ancestor, especially if the goal of competition is different. BJJ is not Judo and Judo is not old school Jujutsu. Those are different skill sets. Folkstyle is simply not catch and neglecting submissions entirely will radically change how it's trained. Plus, even recommending "wrestling" in the western world is dubious given that if you didn't start in high school you missed the boat. Your best bet is going to an MMA gym and going to their takedown classes. Is this "wrestling?" It's definitely learning some double legs and grappling application applied to MMA. But it's not the same thing has having a wrestling background and it certainly isn't catch, which again is dead outside of Japan.

Your two recommendations are a style that barely exists anymore and a style that literally doesn't since you framed it specifically as being boxing circa 1850. Plus, where is the evidence that these bizarrely obscure style choices are superior? The last time catch wrestling was relevant in MMA was the early 00's and I don't think I've ever seen a champion who claims to train old timey pugilism. Why did you conclude that these styles are superior? With what evidence? Gonna have to echo the other guy, you really do seem like you're theorycrafting rather than having any practical experience or advice.
In what way is 3 sets of 12 optimal? The vast majority of strength athletes of any importance train in heavy double, triples and singles (explosively depending on their sport), and if they need muscular endurance they will train with much higher volume. 3x12 is for the accessory work you do after you've done your actual working sets, if you'd posted this on /fit/ rather than /xs/ you'd have been called a retard and your thread would have been archived by now.

As a few people have asked in this thread, what are your credentials? What is your martial arts background? What are your lifting and running stats? Why should this advice be taken over any other advice from anyone in the martial arts or fitness world? Because on the face of it, your advice is just bad
Guys! Guys! Check this out!
Since i spent 30 years inside my room, i used that time to watch martial arts footage do research
See this 18 century mr bob tight boxass is the best version of striking possible
What? If i train? No, dumbass
Instead of wasting hours of my weeks training a single "sport" where you need to fight under rules (remember bruh no rulez on da streetz) i spent it watching street fight videos to prepare myself and build a gameplan
Really simple, when he throws his cross i will side step to the left, rotate and hit him clean in the chin
You pussies spending years buttscooting on bjj and larping as real fighters on mma gyms, i would smash you all
Op can't fight
Too modern for OP. Those guys are wearing gloves.
I also just noticed this part lol
>for you Americans rough and tumble is a very similar thing but you guys got some different techniques
What OP is referring to is an extinct 18th-19th century dueling custom of backwoods Appalachia and Dixie where the intent was to maim your opponent. Usually through gouging the eye. It was literally legendary by the time of the 20th century. How OP could have any insight into rough and tumble fighters is anyone's guess or seriously include it in a recommendation for modern martial arts. Unless, of course, he's just theorizing and has no actual martial arts experience. Which is definitely the case.

I want to see a heavy weight 6'5+ top fighter vs a regular ostrich. Danger discharge signed and all.
Make Shaquille O'Neil do powerlifting for 2 years and train him in MMA, give him gorilla steroids, massive amounts of testosterone, PCP, rile him the fuck up until he has tunnel vision and release him in a coliseum to fight your average ostrich to the death.

What are your thoughts ?
Money's on the ostrich.
Advantage would go to the ostrich only because martial artists have not made a study of ostrich fighting. Given ten years of sparring and study, ostrich fighting would be solved just how gator wrestling is.

Remember that one time Vitor Belfort was allowed to do "TRT" and he went on a four fight rampage where he almost submitted the GOAT and head kicked his other three opponents into oblivion???

Haven't read the rest of the thread but I'm here to tell you unironically no, it's never too late. My father was 46 when he picked it up and he still goes boarding with me like 10 years later
nope, it might be a little tough to learn at first but once you get the hang of it its just getting laps.
Do you have any balance on a board, like fro skateboarding or surfing? No? Then don't do it, just stick to skiing.
by god man, i learned when I was 32. Be a man.
unfortunately yes. it's so over, bro! sorry.
from now on every time in your life you think about doing something cool or fun, you have to remind yourself of your old age and just go home and kill yourself. life ends at 27. that's what the cool CIA "counter"-culture psyops always made me believe.

Title says all, been stuck on a wheelchair for 4 years, no movement from my waist down. Is it possible to climb? It was kinda my dream as a kid, and I know I won't be climbing mountains in this condition, but I'd just like to fulfill a bit of that dream.
Thanks in advance.

I hope kayaking counts as /xs/.
So I want to into kayaking. I am a complete beginner, what kind of kayak, what kind of gear should I buy to begin with?

literally whatever shit model you can strap to your roof and is cheap.
Whitewater is awesome.
Sea kayaking sucks except very occasionally.
> what gear should I buy
I go casually kayaking around a lake a lot and all I use is a kayak and a paddle. Nothing else. What gear you need depends on exactly what kind of kayaking you’re doing. A life jacket is definitely good though.

at my local skatepark today a kid who looked like rowley's board fell out under him and rolled towards me. i handed it back to him and he said "yo, thanks"
Cool story, bro.
sounds kinda gay, anon.
I was too fat to skateboard so I got into longboarding
>too fat
I have been 280+ since 9th grade until current day and I was actually good at skating, loved fake bigflips loved tres loved backside flips. You didn't skate because you weren't meant to bud I'm sorry
i’m eternally pissed off i’ll never be an innocent carefree rowley-looking fat kid at the skatepark who’s biggest worries are homework and what he’ll have for dinner EVER AGAIN

HEMA stands for Historical European Martial Arts, sometimes also called Historical Fencing.
It's reconstructing how to fight with swords, daggers, polearms and other weapons based on old European fighting treatises

I would say so, a decent amount of style as both tricks are landed smoothly. And as a bonus they are back to back. I know I can't do it. I also ride mountain bikes not bmx, the most I can do is air out a quarter pipe and do a one foot off or one hand off but not both at the same time. I also love an hour away from any good jumps or skatepark
I will say only a woman could make that bail at 12 seconds look that way, she makes a failed 50/50 look like she bailed off a rocketship and sent her bike flying. Its a knee high rail just step off.
I do not know
